He bought a house and then began his exploration of gold. Every day, he kept working from early morning until late evening, trying very hard to find gold everywhere. At the beginning, he was still full of hope, and believed that he would soon be able to find gold. However, day after day, year after year, until he became a senior,  he still had no progress in finding gold.
